The first half of “The Walking Dead” Season 6 came to an end last night with the eighth episode entitled Start to Finish. During the after-show The Talking Dead, AMC aired a short prologue giving us a bit of a cliffhanger about what’s going to happen after this break. In this prologue, we hear for the first time the name of the villain we’ve been waiting so long to make his presence known, Negan. However, we do not have the chance to see Negan‘s face, but we meet his gang of Saviors and they surely sent us a bad vibe.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been cast to play the villain. He will be introduced in The Walking Dead season 6 finale and he will become a regular character in The Walking Dead season 7.  Despite of the fact that Negan means a lot of trouble, his appearance could also mean the death of a beloved character from the series. Many speculated that the character killed by Negan could be Daryl, Glenn, or Abraham. In the comics, Negan is introduced in the 100th issue of The Walking Dead, where he suprises Rick and the rest of the people in Alexandria and kills Glenn Rhee (Steve Yeun). Let’s hope though that is not going to happen. We already thought that Glenn is dead in the third episode, Thank you. In the seventh episode, Heads Up, we found out that Glenn escaped that herd of walkers and made it alive. And this would be really sad and cruel to see Glenn facing death again.

All we know is that Negan’s introduction will give the series a new dynamic. He and his group, The Saviors, are known for intimidating other communities into paying tribute to them. This way, they protect them from walkers. Negan’s favorite weapon is a baseball wrapped in barbed wire. This is the weapon with which he killed Glenn in the comics.

The next episode of The Walking Dead season 6 is set to air on Valentine’s day, Sunday 14 February. In the comics, Negan is still alive, and we believe he will become a long-term villain in this zombie series. What do you think though? Will Glenn be killed by Negan? Let us know what you think after watching this prologue with Daryl, Sasha, Abraham and The Saviors.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
